Cafés, Restaurants and the Drosselgasse in Rüdesheim – our recommendations
Since the range of culinary treats available in the Rheingau is almost overwhelming, we have limited ourselves to just a small, subjective selection.
Cafés and Restaurants
Café Seilbahn in Rüdesheim: This café's simple kitchen offers regional specialities. If you have always wanted to try a “Pfälzer Saumagen” (stuffed pig’s stomach), then here’s the place to do it. In addition, you can also feast on homemade goodies to your heart’s content in the café’s own pastry shop.
Monastery Wine Tavern at Eberbach Abbey: The abbey’s kitchen produces hearty and regional dishes as well as selected meals for the cultivated palate. A varied lunch menu rounds off the selection. In addition, there is also a large selection of wines to perfectly complement the food.
Bollesje in Rüdesheim: The ambience at the “Bollesje” in Rüdesheim is truly special. Dining takes place in the dungeon-like atmosphere of a former prison. There are various different programmes that can be booked and which promise an experience to remember.
Eibinger Zehnthof: The Eibinger Zehnthof is already over 500 years old and, as the name suggests, was once the collection point for the “Zehnten” (tithes) that had to be paid to the local rulers and princes. Today visitors can enjoy a morning drink or regional speciality dishes in the late Gothic town hall, as well as, depending on the season, a drop of wine from the vineyard wine tavern or town hall cellar. The Eibinger Zehnthof has its own vineyard and holds wine tastings in the cellar with its wooden barrels.
Around three million international guests visit Germany’s liveliest street every year.
With live music from 12 noon until 4 in the morning, a visit to Drosselgasse is an unforgettable experience. Our Drosselgasse highlights:
Logo: Logo stands out thanks to its wide selection of beers. In total six kinds are available. Additional fun is promised by billiards and darts right though until it closes, whenever that may be!
Nachteule: At the heart of Drosselgasse is the Nachteule, or Night Owl, which is open from 8 pm until 5 am. A large dance floor, wines and sekt from the region as well as various different types of beer all help to get the party started.
Quetschkommod: A super-cosy pub that offers plenty of fun and variety with live music and good, simple food. Open from 12 noon until 2 am, this is the place for a sociable evening in good company. The only fly in the ointment is that Quetschkommod is closed from January to March.
